Never too early to plan for the weekend. Why not try your hand at watching a little field hockey at Trager Stadium? It's the start of the BIG EAST season for Justine Sowry's squad and "the flock" faces tough competition in Old Dominion at 6:30 p.m.

Last week's show has been up on the SoundCloud archives for a couple of days now. Give it a listen. Link below:
